Curt Stager is a paleo-ecologist, award-winning educator, and science journalist whose research focuses on the climatic and environmental histories of Africa, Peru, and the Adirondack region. He has published extensively in major journals including Science and Quaternary Research, was an expert reviewer for the IPCC, and has written for periodicals such as National Geographic, NY Times, Fast Company, and Adirondack Life. He also co-hosts Natural Selections, a weekly science program on North Country Public Radio. His previous book "Deep Future" (St. Martin's, 2011) explores our amazingly long-term impacts on the climatic future of the planet and its inhabitants, and his latest book, “Your Atomic Self,” explores our close elemental ties to the world. Named the Carnegie-CASE Science Professor of the Year for New York in 2013, Curt currently teaches natural sciences at Paul Smith's College in the Adirondacks, and holds an adjunct research post with the University of Maine's Climate Change Institute in Orono, Maine.
